My hipster fox was part of the Inkygoodness Beermat illustration exhibition held at the Coningsby Gallery off Tottenham Court Road in April this year! It was a great exhibition to be part of along with some exiting other illustrators and designers and the kids behind Ammo magazine and sponsored by Sailor Jerry! The show was grand! (take a look at a behind the scenes film of the exhibition here..¬† and the show was indeed jam packed of inky-goodness! It was great to be able to get back to gouache and paint my fox horn-rimmed glasses and all! …some more shots from the show…Image


…there was also another character that didn’t get his paint finished in time! (and sadly still remains un-finished!) ahh I might just post him as a halloween special!

Painted Queen of Diamonds

painted queen of diamonds

hand painted skateboardThis is my work for The Decked Project ( based on my Lady Luck series. It was great to be able to paint a version as well as the screen prints. -The work was created in gouache on wood and was really great to work on, and as far as you can be in love with a painting medium, gouache gets my valentine!- I love the almost china like quality that the finished result produces. The entire set of painted boards that were in the Decked Project can be seen on my Flickr page here…

Inkygoodness Queen of Hearts

September 14, 2009

Here is a not so brilliant photograph of my Queen of Hearts for the Inkygoodness Wonderland show, currently showing at the Custard Factory in Birmingham till the 26th September. I think I have a secret passion for playing cards as they keep cropping up in my work! I also loved working on this piece as I got to bust out the gold paint -yes GOLD! hell yes!

No updates in a while due to being crazy busy working for a number of shows! The Decked Project at StolenSpace, Inkygoodness at the Custard Factory Birmingham and Becondale House Art Party. It’s been great to get out the gouache, brushes and get back to some serious painting. -This is my artwork for my skateboard for Decked, called The Mermaid, and is a a dip into the underwater world of mermaids, koi carps, 1930s divers and water-roses!

Back to the paint box!

Just a quick colour study I’m working on …can’t say too much about it just now, but it’s great to be able to dust off my Gouache and get back to some painting!
